Trillions of microorganisms live on and in the human body, many of them essential to its function and health. These organisms, collectively known as the microbiota, outnumber cells in the body by at least five times.    Microorganisms in the intestinal tract, the gut microbiota, play an especially important role in human health. An investigation on the International Space Station, Rodent Research-7 (RR-7), examines how the gut microbiota changes in response to spaceflight, and how that change...

Astronauts on the International Space Station get food that’s carefully chosen for its nutritional value and specially prepared and packaged to be easily accessible to them in a weightless world on orbit.  Could the same food feed the needs of people stuck on planet Earth?  We conducted an experiment to find out how well two regular people could get by eating only astronaut food for a full week—a week that included a holiday weekend feast, just to up the difficulty factor.  Could they...

A tool that has helped guide sailors across oceans for centuries is now being tested aboard the International Space Station as a potential emergency navigation tool for guiding future spacecraft across the cosmos. The Sextant Navigation investigation tests use of a hand-held sextant aboard the space station.    Sextants have a telescope-like optical sight to take precise angle measurements between pairs of stars from land or sea, enabling navigation without computer assistance. NASA’s...

The new Cold Atom Lab (CAL) facility could help answer some big questions in modern physics. CAL produces clouds of atoms that are ten billion times colder than deep space. The facility uses lasers and magnetic forces to freeze the atoms until they are almost motionless. In the microgravity environment on the space station, it’s possible to observe these ultra-cold atoms for much longer than what’s possible on the ground. The research done using CAL could potentially lead to...

From molecular biology to fluid physics, life sciences and robotics, 2017 was a robust year for research aboard Earth’s only microgravity laboratory. The International Space Station hosts more than 300 experiments during a given Expedition, each working to further space exploration and/or benefit life back on Earth. Here’s a look back at just some of the science that happened on the orbiting laboratory.  _______________________________________     FOLLOW THE SPACE STATION! Twitter:...

Being able to identify microbes in real time aboard the International Space Station , without having to send them back to Earth for identification first, would be revolutionary for the world of microbiology and space exploration, and the Genes in Space-3 team turned that possibility into a reality this year when it completed the first-ever sample-to-sequence process entirely aboard the space station.  This advance could aid in the ability to diagnose and treat astronaut ailments in real time,...

Orbital debris poses a risk to all spacecraft in Earth orbit, so the International Space Station is getting a new debris impact sensor to provide information on the micrometeoroid orbital debris environment in low Earth orbit.  The Space Debris Sensor, launching on the next SpaceX Dragon cargo vehicle, will monitor impacts caused by small-scale orbital debris for a period of two to three years.  That data will improve station safety by generating a more accurate estimate of the amount of...

He’s been an astronaut since 2004 and launched last week with more than four months in space to his credit on two previous missions, so there’s not much more to know about Joe Acaba, right?  Nope: the California native, former middle school math and science teacher and Peace Corps veteran has a few more tricks up his sleeve, and he shares five of them with you right here. _____________________________________ FOLLOW THE SPACE STATION!

The International Space Station passed over two major Atlantic hurricanes on Friday, Sept. 8. First, the station flew approximately 250 miles over Hurricane Jose at approximately 10:10 a.m. EDT while the Category 3 storm was in the Atlantic just east of the Caribbean. One orbit of the Earth later, the station flew over Hurricane Irma at approximately 11:40 a.m. EDT. The powerful Category 4 storm had already brought destructive wind and rain to islands across the Caribbean and is forecast to...
